Excursion with observation of the red-deer in the period of love. Powerful roars resound in the mountains. The stags gather their harems and defend them from the intrusion of other stags taht try to gain the right to reproduction. With a little luck we will witness the spectacular fights of these big mammals. During the excursion it is also possible to watch other animal species (wolves).
